Style Caster posted “How to Wake up With Makeup, According to Makeup Artists” featuring Dr. Purvisha Patel and Visha Skincare .
The article includes Dr. Patel‘s expert commentary on combating dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.
We’ve all been there. Waking up in the morning after enjoying one too many glasses of wine, with no glass of water in reachable distance, and a throbbing headache as the cherry on top. Or, maybe you’ve simply been a victim bedtime anxiety that blocked you from getting any shut eye (why does my brain always happen to want to contemplate the worst possible outcomes of everything when I’m just trying to sleep)? While it probably won’t make you feel any less miserable or zombie-like after when you’re utterly sleep-deprived, learning how to look more awake with makeup can at least help you fake it til you make it –until you can actually hop back into bed, that is. With the right makeup and skincare at your disposal, you can — at the very least— feign a full night’s rest and hide a night’s full of over-indulgence/an anxiety attack — especially if you have things to do and people to see the following day.
Clearly, aiming for a full eight hours, unwinding with some meditation and avoiding going overboard on Wine Wednesdays with the ladies is the ideal course of action if you want to reap the many benefits of beauty sleep and feel like a functional human come morning, but it’s not always a reality. My personal go-to when I’m not feeling my best is to opt for a red lip and some full coverage concealer to distract viewers from puffy, tired eyes — it’s never failed me. But, not everyone is into a bold lippie look, so I went on a quest for some solid morning-after beauty hacks and asked a few makeup artists and derms to disclose their personal (and professional) tips, tricks and products suggestions to find out how to erase the signs of a sleepless night.
1. Use a Brightening Eye Cream
“I combat dark circles and puffiness around the eyes with Visha Skincare Advanced Eye Booster. Caffeine, hyaluronic acid and Emblica Extract tighten the skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 20% in less than 6 minutes! This multitasking eye cream triples as a makeup primer and helps with lines around the lips,” says board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Purvisha Patel.
